The NBA's 50 greatest players list has been cause for some controversy among fans.

Of course Michael Jordan, Bill Russell and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are no-brainers, but where is Dennis Johnson? 

It's been 15 years since the original list has been made. There has been an emergence of some of extremely talented players (James, Bryant, etc.), and statuses have been solidified (Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett).

This has led to more questions as well. 

Does Chris Paul deserve elite status? Is Chris Webber a "greatest" player?

Here is what a possible version of this list could look like in 2021 when the NBA turns 75. As a twist, the list has been expanded to 75. 

Some of the players who could be ensconced on this list may be just be tearing up their JV teams.

This is not a ranking, but a potential list. 

Let the debate begin.
